Prince Charles' Rolls Royce Damaged By Protesters; He's 'Unharmed'

Britain's Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are fine — but their Rolls Royce has a cracked window and has been splattered with paint after a run-in with some of those who were in the streets of London today to protest the huge increases in tuition at U.K. universities.

According to The Independent:

"Charles and Camilla were travelling to the Royal Variety Performance in central London when they were targeted by protesters demonstrating against the rise in tuition fees. When the royal couple arrived at the London Palladium they appeared relaxed and smiled and joked with Kylie Minogue, Take That and N-Dubz, some of the acts that performed for them tonight."

Here's how they reacted:
